Burk från SB. Mörkt kopparfärgad klar vätska med fingertjockt och krämigt skum. Lite vattnig arom samt svag doft av kola och karamell. Blommig humlebeska och så mer karamell i smaken. Mjuk munkänsla.

Pour is dark gold with large tan head. Aroma is biscuits and hay. Very typical ESB. Creamy up front, very British hop in the middle, followed by a slight hop and bitter finish. Serve at proposer English ale temp (not too cold).

Butelka 0.5L.
Wygląd: Bursztynowe, klarowne z iskrą. Biała, skąpa, drobno i średniopęcherzykowa, szybko opadająca piana.
Aromat: Mało intensywny, karmel, palony cukier i pieczywo.
Smak: Lekko metaliczne, karmel, biszkopt, minimalny alkohol, niska, ziołowo-ziemista goryczka. Ciała sporo ale nie jest bardzo słodkie
Odczucie: Spora pełnia, gładkie, oleiste, gęste, nasycenie CO2 średnie.
Całość: Pija się lekko, więc na ugaszenie pragnienia ok, degustacyjnie nie oferuje nic.
